LaserLathe application-specific platforms integrate linear and rotary motion; various workholding devices; servo drives; a user-friendly, feature-packed graphic user interface (nuFace GUI); and a digital servo control system.

A 2-axis mechanical motion platform integrates a linear X-axis and theta-axis motion using direct-drive, brushless servomotors with integrated non-contacting, high-resolution encoders. The resulting smooth motion and precise positioning supports laser operations on small diameter and high-precision tubular components. The sealed autonomous mechanical motion platform module can be installed on any horizontal or vertical surface, creating a horizontal motion axis.

Intelligent laser power modulation (LPM) permits laser power control and rep rate as a function of cutting speed, directly and/or path directly from the MM9 I/O.

The LaserLathe also includes tapped mounting hole tooling features for attaching end-user guide systems to control workpieces at user-defined laser-processing points. Modular component attachment enables integration of configured guide bushing, liquid flush, and gas-assist systems.
